The North American version seems to have its origins in the decades after the American Revolution when a Dutch treat took on a new identity as "doughnuts".

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
